I recently use LAMMPS to simulate gas hydrostatic bearings. The spindle rotates at a constant angular velocity, surrounded by a flowing gas. I want to get the trajectory of the spindle in the gas, can I achieve this goal with LAMMPS? How to mark out the spindle’s center of mass?
What is the size of your bearing? What is it made of? Did you see anything similar in the Literature that used atomistic methods?
By the way, if the spindle rotates at a “constant” angular velocity, shouldn’t the trajectory of the spindle be readily deducible?
